There were many good results from ESOC members at the first event of 2009’s Scottish Orienteering League.
The Scottish Qualifying Round was run in conjunction with SoSOL 10 and ESOC progressed to the UK Final; thanks to everyone for turning up and running for the club.
A glorious morning saw a multitude of ESOC competitors at this CLYDE event, which was also the Scottish qualifying round for the CompassSport Cup / Trophy.
There was a big turnout from ESOC for ELO’s South of Scotland League event.
Just a few hardy ESOC members braved the early snow to run at this sparsely-attended AYROC event, the 8th in the 2008-9 South of Scotland Orienteering League.
This year’s British Championships had a change of date which meant that it clashed with the ESOC Sprint O, but despite this, ESOC was represented at the event, held in the New Forest, Hampshire.
